It was getting on for 16.00 hrs, yesterday afternoon, and I was preparing to load the car with my gear for another session out on the marsh. Standing in the kitchen, talking with Bev, I spotted a commotion going on down by my aviary as a large female Sparrowhawk was dispatching a hapless victim. She then proceeded to devour her prize, perched on my flight - much to the amusement of my Canary and the total panic of the Java Sparrow flock. I quickly grabbed my camera and fitted my 1.4x converter to the 500mm lens and took a series of images through the window. ISO 1600 with 1/320th sec exposure - seems to have done the trick?
